Gym in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Gym in Phnom Penh, Cambodia - Body Beast Workout
 Gym in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

It isn't difficult to find temples, tuk tuks, palaces, and markets in Cambodia, but it's also pretty easy to find great places to workout as well. From outdoor parks to local gyms, there is really no reason to not be able to stay fit while you're in Phnom Penh. I you are looking for a free place to workout, then you're in luck! Simply make your way to the Mekong River and not too far from the Royal Palace, you will find a nice little outdoor fitness park complete with pull-up bar, monkey bars, dip station, and more. And there is plenty of real estate to get a good run in before and after your workout.

If an indoor gym in Phnom Penh is more of what you're looking for, then you're in luck too =), there is a good selection of places to check out while in Phnom Penh. I found a small local gym called V-Friend Gym and it was all I needed to get a good Body Beast Workout in along with a good run on the treadmill. The gym is very basic with a few treadmills, some cardio equipment, free weights, dumbbells etc. They also have a place next door that offers Spa Services, I think it's owned by the same people. I noticed that they had an air conditioner, but it was not in use, so it could get really hot in there. But for $2.50 for a Day Pass, it was all worth it to me.

Here are some photos of the facility:

The staff was pretty laid back, I don't think they see a lot of foreigners. V-Friend Gym offers day passes, weekly, monthly, and yearly memberships. So if you are in Phnom Penh, and you have seen the Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields, then why not make your way to the gym! No one has ever said "Man, I really regret that workout!" =)

Stay active my friends!
